Title

The experience of pastoral organisation in African countries

Author

Sylla, Djeidi

Description

This report aims to highlight some of the complexities of pastoral organisations and some of the constraints they face. It is not a matter of rethinking or working out a new policy for organising pastoral societies, but of describing and analysing certain problems. The document does not pretend to be exhaustive nor to define a standard model of pastoral organisations or approaches which in any case could not be applied to such diverse situations and contexts.
